We are witnessing right now an epochal battle for the true identity of mankind: Are human beings, as the proponents of the New Green Deal suggest, parasites that put a strain on nature, and whose number must, therefore, be kept as low as possible? Or is the human species the only creative one known in the universe so far, a species with a limitless capacity for self-perfection both of its mind and the beauty of its character, with infinite capabilities to discover new principles of our physical universe?
This is not an esoteric question; it is the central axiomatic controversy underlying the present strategic battle between the collapsing old paradigm of the neoliberal system and of geopolitical confrontation, and the emerging new paradigm of an economic model devoted to the common good of all people of this world, living in a harmonious relation of the development of all.
The old paradigm is the British Empire paradigm of voracious greed and of oligarchical control of the world. It expresses itself in the fact that fewer and fewer people own the wealth of the world—a 2018 report found that just 26 individuals possess half the wealth of the entire human population—at the expense of the poor becoming poorer and more numerous. The hardships this paradigm causes for the ordinary man, woman, and child, are the reasons for the Brexit vote in 2016, for President Trump’s election by what Hillary Clinton cynically called the “deplorables,” for the election victory of the present Italian government, and for the protest of the “Yellow Vests” in France, a protest which is spreading to other European countries.
A New Paradigm in the United States?
President Trump promised not only to defend the living standard of the population, by recreating productive jobs for everyone, but also to end the permanent foreign wars and to set US relations with Russia and China on a positive basis. But, so far, the British-designed coup attempt pushed by the Democrats and by neocons in the Republican Party is designed to prevent Trump from carrying out his intention, to force a continued confrontation with Russia and China, and even to draw Trump himself into a new quagmire of foreign interventionist war in Venezuela.
Concerning Russia, in respect to the withdrawal from the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, President Trump may have one intention—possibly replacing the INF with a new agreement—but the Russians are reacting to the reality of the hawkish tones coming from other members of the administration, such as John Bolton, Michael Pompeo, Dan Coats and others, as well as the British “minister of war,” Gavin Williamson, who threatens to use “hard power” and who claims that the “boundaries between peace and war are becoming blurred.”
In response to this strategic environment, President Vladimir Putin declared, in his annual address to the Federal Assembly, that in the wake of the US withdrawal from the INF treaty, Russia does not intend to deploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe, but that if the US does, “It will dramatically exacerbate the international security situation, and create a serious threat to Russia, because some of these missiles can reach Moscow in just 10-12 minutes… Russia will be forced to create and deploy weapons that can be used not only in the areas we are directly threatened from, but also in areas that contain decision-making centers for the missile systems threatening us.”
Putin stressed, that Russia does not seek confrontation, but that it is enhancing its defense capabilities in order to make sure that “nobody would even consider pressuring us, or launching an aggression against us.” In other words: if this spiral of a new arms race and possible confrontation goes out of control, Europe would not be the only nuclear rubblefield. Russian defense minister Shoigu commented on Putin’s speech, that Russia’s new weapon systems, such as the hypersonic glider “Avangard,” which can travel at speeds beyond Mach 20, are a hundred times less costly than the American missile defense system, which can only reach a speed of Mach 5, and which, according to experts, is therefore obsolete.
Defeating the Attempted Coup Against Trump
So it is high time to stop the coup against President Trump, especially in light of the fact that not only has the Senate confirmed that there was not one shred of evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, but also that members of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity have produced evidence that the so-called “Russian Hack” was actually an inside job. They have produced the technical evidence, that the emails of the DNC were downloaded and not hacked.
What we now see unfolding in the Russiagate coup is what the military analyst Pat Lang correctly calls a “seditious conspiracy,” an effort to “overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States.” The perpetrators of this conspiracy must be brought to justice, and all the documents concerning the role of the infamous Christopher Steele dossier and the role of British intelligence in collusion with forces inside the US must be made public.
President Trump has waged a tremendously courageous fight under these conditions, but he now needs the support of every patriotic American, to free him from the chains of the “seditious conspiracy” of the so-called “Russiagate,” whose entire aim was from the beginning to prevent him from improving relations with Russia, and by implication, with China.
What the fake media have hidden from the American population is the fact, that a new paradigm has been developing with a speed and a depth about which most people, who have been subjected to a wartime-like propaganda campaign against China, have absolutely no inkling. President Xi Jinping, whom Trump continues to call his “very good friend,” has initiated with his Belt and Road Initiative a completely new system of international relations, of countries working together on a win-win basis for the common good of all.
The media try to convince people that China is stealing US technology. But it was China that was the first nation of the world to land successfully on the far side of the moon, and which even got a cotton plant to sprout and grow there! That means China is the first country ever, that has brought other life to an extraterrestrial body! That is a new chapter in the history of mankind!
Reaching the Stars, Together
On December 11, 2017, Trump issued his Space Policy Directive 1, which called for the United States to “lead the return of humans to the Moon for long-term exploration and utilization, followed by human missions to Mars and other destinations.” Immediately following China’s successful landing of the Chang’e-4 on the far side of the Moon, the Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA), said that China is willing to work with the international community, and especially the US, to push forward the frontiers of space exploration! At a recent meeting at the Great Hall of the People, Xi Jinping thanked the 400 scientists and engineers who worked on the Chang’e-4 mission and told them that space exploration is endless, that all great undertakings start with a dream, that dreams are the source of energy.
So the US is truly at a crossroad: The road of confrontation with Russia and China could lead very quickly to the annihilation of humankind. That danger is very real. On the other side, the new paradigm of all nations uniting in the pursuit of the common aims of mankind is developing very fast. Joint space exploration is maybe the most beautiful and lofty of all the domains, where mankind can and will work together for a joined future.
The Hubble Space Telescope found evidence that our universe consists of at least two trillion galaxies! Wow! This means that the people promoting the Green New Deal (essentially, Wall Street) are not only greedy, but also completely off their rocker! Because we are not living in a closed system of the planet Earth, but we are an integral part of this incredible universe! To venture into that great beyond, requires nuclear fusion rockets in space, and an Earth civilization of development, science, and physical productivity, not energy poverty. As Xi Jinping said to the scientists and engineers of the recent lunar mission: “Exploring the vast universe is the common dream of all of mankind!”
Let’s realize that beautiful dream!
